Before the title of this blog gives you a heart attack, don’t worry! I’m not referring to any of the cute little kids! Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin and Eleven are all drug free (for at least another year or so?), but unfortunately the same cannot be said for Will’s older brother, Jonathan Byers.
Charlie Heaton who plays Jonathan on the show and is currently dating Natalia Dyer (who plays Nancy) IRL got detained at the airport when traveling to LA for the Stranger Things season 2 premiere, when he got detained and caught with coke. What is it with minor celebrities trying to bring drugs on planes?! Jesus, you’re not Charlie Sheen.
Apparently the customs dog sniffed out some cocaine in Charlie’s luggage when he arrived in LA and he was banned from entering the US and sent back to the UK, which is why he wasn’t at the Stranger Things premiere with the rest of the kids.
Charlie is 25, so not really a kid, but that’s neither here nor here.
Since I binge-watched the first season of Stranger Things, I totally thought that Charlie Heaton gave me young River Phoenix/Christian Slater vibes, and apparently he took that role a little too seriously. Homeboy has gone from trying to save his brother from the upside down to sneaking coke onto a plane like he’s Demi Lovato circa 2010 (not a dig at Demi, she had a serious problem and she beat it!).
Charlie, you are not famous enough to be sneaking drugs onto a plane. You’re not even famous enough to be kicked off a plane for being drunk and disorderly. Maybe Eleven or Barb could pull this shit, but not you. Wait until we’ve all finished binge-watching season two of Stranger Things before you try to sneak drugs into the US again, ok?
